HP Designjet Z2100 Photo Printer Series - Paper Profiles

Each supported paper type has it's own characteristics. For optimum print quality, the printer changes the way it prints on each different paper type. For example, some may need more ink and some may require a longer drying time. So the printer must be given a description of the requirements of each paper type. This description is called the 'media' or 'paper' profile. The paper profile contains the ICC profile, which describes the color characteristics of the paper; it also contains information on other characteristics and requirements of the paper that are not directly related to color. Existing paper profiles for the printer are already installed in the printer's software.
However, as it is inconvenient to scroll through a list of all paper types available, the printer only contains paper profiles for the most commonly used paper types. If the printer does not have a profile for the paper type, then the paper type selection cannot be done on the control panel display.
There are three ways to assign a profile for a new paper type.
  • Use a HP factory paper profile by selecting the closest category and type in the front panel, HP Easy Printer Care (Microsoft Windows), or HP Printer Utility (Mac OS).
      note:
    Colors may not be accurate. This method is not recommended for high-quality prints.
  • Click here to visit http://www.hp.com/go/knowledge_center/djz2100/ and download the correct paper profile.
      note:
    HP only provides profiles for HP paper types. If the required paper profile is not found on the Web, it may be added to the latest firmware for the printer. Check the firmware release notes for information. Click here for more information at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c00749464.
  • Add custom paper type, and create an ICC profile, this works for both HP and non-HP papers.
